Wanted: humbly confident Technology Grade 7 to 9 teachers for part-time work
At Learning Lab Apps we build the world’s best edtech apps. We’ve built an amazing product (WorksheetCloud) that has been a huge hit with parents from day one, and we continue to grow thanks to happy users who can’t keep quiet about how much of a difference WorksheetCloud has made in the lives of their children (look here).
Our company is growing and we’re looking for teachers on a part-time basis with experience teaching Technology for Grade 7 to 9 to help us continue to build the best edtech app ever.
If you have the ability to create insightful Technology content (this is a content writing / authoring position) in one or more grades from Grade 7 to 9, then this job will be right up your alley!
This is the perfect part-time job for a teacher looking for a side hustle that will generate a decent second income. You’ll be designing Technology curriculum content (study notes, worksheets and practice exams etc.) for WorksheetCloud.
This is a remote working position meaning that you can work for us from anywhere in the world.
